I think it’s safe to say that most people, even the most intrepid, have never been to Antarctica. It’s just not on the top ten list of tourist destinations. The closest most of us get is listening to David Attenborough’s cultured narration in documentaries about how the Antarctic flora and fauna survive one of the most brutal environments possible. “Beneath” takes me there, to the snowy cliffs at the ocean’s edge, where seals and penguins slide, tumble and dive into an ocean that could be their salvation, or their end.

These Chromaluxe Aluminum miniatures are available in 6” x 6” and 8” x 8” sizes and include a slotted stand for a counter, desk or shelf. Each print is hand-enhanced with gold, copper, or silver mark-makings for a one-of-a-kind piece. The best part? The 6” x 6” metals include a gift box!
